UPDATE INFO - MEXICO
URGENT INFORMATION *****MEXICO CUSTOMS DOES IT AGAIN!!!***********
TRUCK CAMPERS - NOT ALLOWED UNLESS YOU HAVE A 1/2 TON TRUCK!
WE HAD A MEETING TODAY (AUG 16TH) WITH CUSTOMS OFFICIALS AND WAS TOLD THAT ANY TRUCK OTHER THAN A 1/2 TON CARRYING A CAMPER WOULD NOT BE ISSUED A VEHICLE PERMIT!
They go by the GVW on the vehicle and combined with the camper is over the Mexican Law limits for a tourist permit - Motorhomes are exempted from this!
There can be some exceptions with an "additional fee"...(lol)..
However they did tell us that if you can get the "Truck/Camper registered in your state as a "motorhome", they would issue a 10 year permission.
>TOURIST VISA PENDING PRICE INCREASE<-
We've heard from our Mexico Government sources that the FMM Tourist Visa may have a rate increase as soon as next week. If this happens, any tourist visa that hasn't been validated at the border crossing will be null and void and No refunds will be made.
Therefore if you're holding an un-activated visa you need to get to the border ASAP and have it activated.
Just as soon as we confirm this possible price increase and the amount, I will send you that information.
Remember, always put 180 days in the area of how long you will be staying. This is so you don't have to purchase another Visa within the next 6 months.
Wishing you the best for 2017,

Mexico Driver’s License Insurance Policy Details
One of the most requested and popular Mexico Insurance policies just got better with ADA VIS Global and Seguros El Potosi S.A. This policy is conveniently attached to an individual’s driver’s license insuring the diver on any vehicle he/she may operate in the Republic of Mexico. This policy DOES NOT include any physical damage, or theft to the vehicle. The following are specific coverage’s that are included in the policy:
• Perfect liability policy for Motorcycles or multiple vehicles that are taken to Mexico and are only concerned about public liability.

Is anyone else insured under my driver’s license policy?
No, this policy insures the specific driver’s license that is stated on the policy for any vehicle they may operate. If you have multiple drivers you must purchase a driver’s license policy for each individual or consider placing coverage on the vehicle specifically.

32. After Santiago, we travel in the wine country (and sample some too!) The vineyards stretch forever, you can almost smell the grapes, great trout streams, and historic towns with German Style buildings.
33. Before crossing the Andes into Argentina, we stop at a hot springs, and pass fields of bright colored tulips, painting the countryside.
34. Then we travel to the “pass” with snow on both sides of the highway, at the top is the official border of CHILE/ARGENTINA, however the border station into Argentina is a few kilometers ahead. We stop to get a view of “Reflection Lake” below, and then on to the border.
35. Out of the snow at the border station, and on to Barlioche - the winter capital of Argentina where we stay a couple of days .. first class restaurants, chocolate factories, and typical gift shops here… ice skating rink too. Lago Argentino here. Ski is a hour away if you want to.
